Stunning landscapes with dizzying visual detail, and a tool that lets you record and edit in-game footage and upload it to YouTube, puts this open-world game lightyears ahead of its competitors

93 / 100 - Alien: Isolation
Oct 3, 2014

The game the Alien series has always deserved. A deep, fun stealth game set in an evocatively realised sci-fi world.

A deep, rich, and wonderfully written RPG that lives up to the towering legacy of the games that inspired it.

An irresponsibly deep detective RPG that lets you be any kind of detective you want. Even a bad one.

A fun, polished, handcrafted RPG attached to a genuinely funny 15-hour-long South Park episode.

Not the dramatic reinvention I expected, but this is tense and refined survival horror with a brilliantly bleak, grimy atmosphere.

89 / 100 - Far Cry 4
Nov 23, 2014

At its core, this is just a brilliant, well-designed shooter. The weapons feel great, there’s genuine opportunities for creativity, and it all takes place in a dynamic world where random tiger attacks are commonplace.

Jan 22, 2019

A tense, challenging, and beautiful remake of a classic survival horror game, and with enough fresh ideas to make it feel excitingly new.

A beautiful, smartly designed game set in a gorgeous futuristic city, but with a story that doesn't quite do it justice.

A massive, bountiful RPG with richly descriptive writing, a well-realised setting, and deep tactical combat.

A weird, beautiful, melancholy martial arts adventure. Flawed, but an unforgettable, singular experience.

A deep, entertaining stealth sandbox with endless scope for mastery. You kept us waiting, Kojima, but it was worth it.

A lovingly remastered version of a LucasArts classic. Day of the Tentacle is every bit as funny and entertaining as it was back in 1993.

A beautiful adventure with heart, humour, and satisfying hacking puzzles you can enjoy even if you don't know anything about coding.

A brilliantly funny, disturbing, and entertaining visual novel, but the lack of interaction won't appeal to everyone.

A slick RPG with superb tactical combat, a detailed world to explore, and a gleefully crude sense of humour.

85 / 100 - Axiom Verge
May 13, 2015

A massive, challenging retro-flavoured shooter that takes the Metroid formula and runs with it. Old school, but with a modern edge.
